Summary of advantages:

Samsung Galaxy S7:
* Higher resolution display
* Gorilla Glass 4 protection
* Top of the line Exynos chipset
* Higher RAM
* Bigger storage option
* Brighter f/1.7 aperture of both  cameras
* Dual SIM capability
* Wireless charging
* Heart rate sensor
* Slightly larger battery
* Updated Android 6.0


Sony Xperia Z5:
* Bigger sensor, more megapixel count

Oops, looks like the Z5 needs a bit of catching up in terms of specifications as it’s currently behind compared to the most recent Galaxy flagship. While Sony still has the advantage when it comes to pixel count, which means better details per capture. When Sony releases a new powerhouse smartphone, it should definitely be at par with Sammy’s.
